Angus Brayshaw concussion injury
Brayshaw – who wears a helmet when he plays AFL – has had a history of concussion issues in his career, including four in the space of 12 months in his early days.
His brother, Hamish, said the Melbourne star would undergo brain scans for a decision on his playing future would be made.
“I spoke to him earlier on today – he’s having some scans on his brain from the same doctor who looked after him a few years ago,” Hamish Brayshaw said from Perth.
“Health comes number one and he’s got a life to live after football.
“I think that’ll be something he’ll assess over the off-season and whether or not his body can keep going, time will tell.”
